A North Dakota native, I graduated from North Dakota State University in 1995 with a B.S. in Veterinary Technology. After 4 years in the veterinary field in North Dakota as a Licensed Veterinary Technologist, I decided it was time to pursue my full dream and went back to school. I graduated from Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004 and then joined the North Country Veterinary Clinic team. My husband, Derek, and I enjoy going to his 2 teenagers' activities and doing outdoor activities together. We both enjoy horseback riding and camping, ATV riding, fishing, and snowmobiling. We have 4 horses, a German Shepherd Dog, and a cat that round out our family.
